Gears have different uses in a wide variety of industrial and mechanical equipment in addition to cars and bikes. Gears are used to control the power while a machine is being operated. The role of a gear in industrial machines is to optimize the productivity by reducing the speed and not the revolutions.
Industrial gear boxes are used in a variety of industries like Wind Power, Cement, Chemical, Rubber & Plastics, Construction, Food & Beverage, Marine, Material Handling, Metals & Mining, Power Generation, Recreational Vehicle, Transportation Industry, Agriculture, Automotive, Aerospace, Defence, Semiconductor, Robotics, Textile, and Healthcare to name a few. Industrial gearbox are mainly classified by their type like Planetary, Helical, Bevel, Spur, Worm and others like Helical-Bevel and Planetary Worm.
The most common type of industrial gears that are being used is Spur gears where the teeth of these gears fall parallel to a machine’s rotational axis. These type of gears are used in machines which have low speed applications and proper sound organization.
Helical type of gears are famous for their teeth-shaped edges which create a thrust load. Unlike Helical gears, the Spur gears are not parallel to a machine’s rotational axis. They are mainly used in industries like Rubber, Medical, Steel, Packing, and more.
Worm gears are used mainly in steel, sugar, paper, and textile plants. There are two types of worm gears, single-threaded and multi-threaded. They are also known as wheel industrial gears.
Bevel type of gears are used mainly for shafts where they are fitted at a right angle to a machine’s rotational axis. Some of the application where Bevel gears are used are in hand drill, printing, and a number of other machines.
Planetary gears are used in gearboxes that power everything from basic plant machinery to electric vehicles. Planetary gears are used in applications that demand high torque density, operational efficiency, and durability. When space and weight becomes an issue Planetary gears are often used where a large amount of speed reduction and torque are needed. Planetary gear are used in turbine engines, automatic transmissions, and even electric screwdrivers. They are also used in tractors and construction equipment.
Gear reducer are a mechanical transmission device that connects the motor to a driven load. They are also known as a gearbox. To modify the torque and speed between a motor and a load, Gear reducers are used. If your gearbox is down, you need keep it running as quickly and efficiently as possible. Repairing an existing gearbox can be the most quick and cost effective way. Procuring a new gearbox from manufacturers takes several months to get. Repairing can restore gearbox performance less than the cost of replacement.
